Bee Brush wooden handle

$6.95 Excluding GST

Hive World’s wooden handle bee brush has soft natural fibre bristles to gently remove your bees without crushing or injuring them.  You can carefully brush bees off queen cells as well as firmly removing them from frames, supers or clothes.  Ideal for removing bees  from the frames when you are doing inspections and when harvesting a small number of frames.

This is a good method if you only need to harvest a small number of frames as leaving brushed frames for too long can be an invitation to robbing.  You also need to make sure the honey is capped or you will end up with a clogged brush which will no longer be efficient.  (until you get a chance to wash it!)

    Hive World’s Wooden Handle Bee Brush:

    • has a single row of natural fibre bristles.
    • is gentle enough for brushing bees off queen cells yet firm enough to remove bees from frames, supers, or clothes.
    • will not crush or injure bees.
    • a useful tool for assisting a swarm into a box or hive.
    • good to use when only harvesting a few frames of capped honey. (Be aware that if you brush over the uncapped comb, the bristles will get clogged).
    • It is very important to maintain hygiene with your bee brush – with careless use you could easily spread disease from one hive to another.  Wash in warm soapy water and sun dry to ensure hive health.
